Systems of Care for Children with Emotional Disturbances
The National Technical Assistance Center for Children's Mental Health and the Child, Adolescent, and Family Branch of the Center for Mental Health Services are sponsoring training institutes on developing local systems of care for children and adolescents with emotional disturbances and their families.
Held July 10-14 in Washington, DC, the institutes will focus on family involvement and cultural competence and provide comprehensive, practical information on developing and operating community-based systems of care that incorporate effective intervention strategies. The institutes are designed for State and local policymakers, planners, administrators, program managers, service providers, clinicians, case managers, families, youth, advocates, researchers, educators, and others concerned with improving services for children and adolescents and their families.
